Retired middle linebacker Rolando McClain had a shaky workout in front of Ravens' officials today, leaving his future with the team in doubt. McClain was unable to pass the team's conditioning test and showed considerable rust during drills, according to team sources. However, his struggles didn't come as a huge surprise to Ravens' officials since McClain hasn't played in an NFL game since late in the 2012 season. It's unclear if the Ravens will revisit the situation and give McClain another workout at a later date, allowing him more of an opportunity to get in football shape, or if they are officially ready to move on from the oft-troubled linebacker.

Jamir Tillman learned early on not to overlook life after football. Tillman, a sophomore wide receiver at Navy, heard how his father Cedric began working as an accountant in Las Vegas during a six-year career in the National Football League that ended prematurely because of a back injury. "You never know when your last down of football is going to be," Tillman said. "I know coming here, it's not just about football, it's about your future and about being put around men that are going to develop you as a leader.

Given the recent crackdown on contract hits, as noted in "Sins of the Saints" (March 22) and other player run-ins with the law, perhaps the acronym NFL refers to the National Felons League. Dennis R. McCartney, Baltimore

I am a rabbi and attorney who grew up in Baltimore. In past years I have been unsuccessful in getting the NFL to look at the religious holiday schedules before scheduling games that conflict with these observances. Rather than set up a calendar committee to avoid cultural conflict and disrespect, the NFL chooses to either ignore the issue or view to view it with "benign neglect. " Neither is acceptable. It happens that, aside from being observant, I am also an enthusiastic sports fan. There is simply no excuse for intentionally scheduling sports events on days that conflict with major religious holidays.

Ryan and Kubiak Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune It is difficult to argue with the choices of the players who were polled by The Sporting News. Gary Kubiak (underrated) has not won big in the postseason, but he runs a solid program, develops players and finds a way to consistently contend. Since the start of the 2011 season, he has guided the Texans to a 17-7 record despite seeing his team battle through some potentially devastating injuries.He really has put Houston on the NFL map again, with the four best seasons in franchise history.

I know that I probably will, or at least should, burn in hell for thinking, much less saying it, but isn't the NFL's "pink" campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer becoming a bit tiresome? The sentiment is admirable, but haven't they gone a little over the top? The money spent on pink caps, shoes, chinstraps, do-rags, etc. would be of much more benefit if donated directly to the cause.

COLLEGE PARK -- Ryan Schlothauer knows it's a longshot for him to make the NFL, or even get an invitation to a rookie and free agent mini-camp this summer. The former Maryland tight end, who last played for the Terps in 2012, also knows something else about beating the odds. Few thought Schlothauer would even play for the Terps in the first place after his high school career ended at Eastern Tech. But the chances of continuing with football - or any kind of physical activity - seemed insurmountable nearly a year ago after Schlothauer was stabbed in a Towson bar. Stab wounds in his chest caused him to lose a large amount of blood, and the then 23-year-old said he stopped breathing as the ambulance raced to the trauma center at Sinai Hospital.

Editor's note: Towson junior running back Terrance West declared early for the NFL draft after setting school records with 4,584 rushing yards and 86 touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 223-pound Baltimore native is not enrolled at Towson this semester as he pursues the NFL and is sharing his draft experiences with Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson. At the NFL scouting combine, West, who's on Twitter @TWest28, delivered a strong performance as he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds with a 33.5-inch vertical leap and caught the football smoothly in drills.

ORLANDO -- Ravens coach John Harbaugh just spoke with reporters for about an hour on a variety of topics at the NFL owners meetings. Here are some of the highlights: Like owner Steve Bisciotti did a day earlier, Harbaugh again defended Ray Rice and said that, despite the running back's legal issues, Rice will be on the team in 2014. Harbaugh, however, acknowledged that the team's three arrests in a 22-day span were embarrassing and inexcusable. Harbaugh confirmed that Jeremy Zuttah , who was acquired Sunday for a 2015 fifth-round draft pick, is projected as the starting center.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A year ago, the Ravens' contingent arrived at the NFL owners' meetings riding a wave of emotion. About a month and a half earlier, the Ravens finalized a stunning playoff run by beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and to capture the organization's second Lombardi Trophy. In the days that followed, they enjoyed the highs of a grand parade and the lows of watching part of the nucleus of the team get torn apart through retirements, trades and free-agent defections.

I have developed a habit of noting things that annoy me, a not infrequent task for a Republican these days. When the grievance list gets long enough, I turn it into a Sunday column. Herein my latest list: 1. Eric Holder: In no particular order, suing states over photo identification laws and school choice statutes, advising states on the merits of selective law enforcement, a "Contempt of Congress" citation over the IRS' targeting of conservative groups, foregoing the prosecution of Black Panthers engaged in voter intimidation, and the "Fast and Furious" gun running program are but a sampling of the reasons to be upset by the performance of this hard left attorney general.

I had a great week. I'm on top of everything. Nothing has changed since being at IMG Academy. I'm eating good. I'm taking care of business. I'm working out and spending time with my family. We had a nice get-together at my mom's house. We play card games, mostly spades. I'm just starting to play. My grandfather was my partner in spades. He's doing pretty good. There's still a little piece of cancer left in his stomach. He's in high spirits. He's staying strong. He has a positive attitude.

Deciding how to split up $9 billion in revenues is the biggest obstacle in gaining a new collective bargaining agreement for the NFL, but not the only one. These are the two other contentious issues: Expanded, 18-game regular season: Owners want to convert two unattractive — but full-priced — preseason games into regular-season paydays. Among the concessions they'll have to consider are increasing the roster, reducing the amount of contact players are allowed in practice, and enhancing the post-career healthcare package.

The Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society on Thursday announced its plan to partner with USA Football in an effort to prevent concussions in youth football. "Athlete safety is advanced through education, and that is the heart of USA Football's Heads Up Football program,” society President John Norwig said in a statement.

Remember Justin Tucker's 27-yard, last-second field goal that seemingly sailed over the right upright to beat the New England Patriots early in the 2012 regular season? The Patriots certainly do. Patriots coach Bill Belichick made contact with a game official while contesting the ruling and now New England has submitted a potential rule change to the league that would extend the goal posts five additional feet above the crossbar. That would make it easier for the referees to determine whether a field goal -- such as the one that came off Tucker's right foot -- is good.
